In brief: No

Erb's palsy results from a traction injury to the nerves in the neck.
As such, once it presents, it remains present until it slowly resolves, which may take weeks or months. Although it is possible to re-injure those nerves, that is rather unlikely, and recurrent erb's would be quite unusual.
