In brief: Get all vaccines
CF (cystic fibrosis) is all the more reason to get the h1n1 vaccine, each annual influenza vaccine, and all vaccines in general.
This is also true for any chronic illness that makes you more vulnerable to the complications of the disease prevented by the vaccination. There are some individuals for whom killed vaccines are preferable to live attenuated vaccines. Your doctor knows which to choose.

In brief: Absolutely
This should be vital as the risk of influenza including h1n1 far, far outweigh any potential side effects of the vaccine.
