In brief: No

The answer is no- unless you are B12 deficient, in which case you need a full evaluation to why you are deficient.
Especially since B12 deficiency can lead to neurological problems and anemia.

In brief: Not really

There are a bunch of different b vitamins but I am not aware that any can augment the utility of an influenza immunization.
