In brief: Vaccines

There is no such thing as "strengthening the immune system" in general; all you can do is make sure you eat a balanced, nutritious diet so your immune system can do what it is supposed to do.
You can strengthen your immune system to specific infections such as the influenza virus by getting vaccinated to it, but there is no way to simply amp up your immunity overall.
