With vaccine codes also come "prophylactic" codes which by definition means "to prevent" or "an agent that acts to prevent a disease" so you could still code for it if you wanted to. As far as which code to use, I guess it depends on whether or not the pt was exposed and that is why the dispensing of the meds, or if the patient was actually diagnosed with Malaria.
