Abstract

The authors present a short summary of the current state of malaria vaccine development and the per- spectives for the availability of a malaria vaccines for travellers from non-endemic countries. There is currently no commercially available malaria vaccine for travellers. The efficacy of the RTS,S/AS01 vaccine is limited and differs dramatically from the effects of other vaccines administered in travel medicine. In the current recommendations, the use of repellents is deemed the most important measure to prevent malaria infection, and in the high-risk destinations, chemoprophylaxis is strongly advised. Many questions in malaria vaccinology remain unanswered.
