Vaccination is completely a personal choice. We don’t emphasis our personal views on it. Coming to malaria, though malaria is prevalent in most of the parts of India, it is not the case with Trivandrum, Kerala. However, there are abundant repellents available locally. If you choose to take the vaccination as a matter of precaution then you should have it done well before your journey to avoid unpleasant experiences like nausea during the journey.
