In brief: Yes

Mono is caused by the ebv virus.
Once a person catches ebv, it seems to stay in one's body, and can re-activate to cause mono-like symptoms more than once. Staying healthy & happy, eating a balanced diet, and getting reasonable exercise, etc... May help keep one's immune system in top shape, to keep the ebv virus suppressed. Occasionally, other germs can cause a "mono-like" illness.
