Yes, you can get scabies from your partner, but not IN your vagina. Scabies would like appear in your genital area, hands, or basically any skin surface that has a prolonged contact. Scabies is a SKIN infestation, and the inside of the vagina is not skin, but rather mucous membrane.  You should consider avoiding sexual contact until your boyfriend's scabies is successfully treated and cured, and see your own medical provider if you are having any signs of scabies yourself (an itchy rash).
