In brief: Yes

There are many vitamins & supplements that boost immune function.
He could try a good multivitamin plus 2000 mg of vit, .C 2x/day, 5000 units of vit d in winter months & additional zinc. Many herbs can also help, such as astragalus, ashwagandha & medicinal mushrooms like cordyceps. A healthy diet & stress reduction will also help.
