Nope.

Jetpacks do not support virus software on themselves.  Only the clients that are connected to the Jetpack need to have virus protection like your laptop, smartphone or other wireless device.  This is commonly the situation for routers and modems.

Otherwise if you wanted to provide yourself with extra protection then you would have to look into setting up some kind of a 3rd party firewall.  The firewall would protect your device from direct exposure to the Jetpack.  The virus protection software on your devices would then only have to worry about what makes it through your firewall.  Most OSs come with some kind of a firewall built into them already though.
