Exactly!

I hope that the vaccine that they are working on at Novartis (Swiss medical industry) will work \O

This is good news , but please remember that the Plasmodium vivax malaria is not the same as the Plasmodium falciparum which occurs here in Southern Africa .
Plasmodium falciparum is the most virulent of the 5 types of malaria occurring world-wide :O^

Not sure I would be keen to get a vaccine
I am quite happy to use the tablets for my week in Kruger once a year or every two years.
Don't think I want something foreign in my body when 99% of the time it is not needed.
