In brief: Not directly
Testosterone has little effect on the immune system directly.
However, low testosterone can be associated with depression and that is associated with poor immune function.

In brief: Difficult to say
Because testosterone is a necessary hormone in men, it can also affect many other organs and the immune system as well.
But it is very difficult to say that testosterone, either high or low, can have dramatic effects on immunity.
