How can I avoid or prevent this type of vulnerability scanning? or what recommendations do you suggest me?
First you can activate on the security rule the DSRI which will prevent analyse on your server answer.
Or you can create a custom profile for this rule
At the end on your global profile you can disable some alert.
Here is a doc that explains on how to exempt an ip address from threat profile
You can use the above doc so it will not scan that.
Here is another useful doc regarding threat prevention.
