    Hello. You do not have to fall sick if you are bitten unless the mosquitoes have taken a blood meal fron an infected person. If you mean malaria and you live in an endemic zone you should have some immunity. If however you start having symptoms I will advise you see a Doctor get tested for malaria before you commence medications. The same for any other disease caused by mosquitoes. To prevent bites you can wear long sleeve clothings, long pants, use insecticide treated nets and use repellants containing DEET. You should also make sure no stagnant water are around your house. All the best and cheers
