Best Answer

No.

According to Wikipedia...

"A popular myth is that sharks are immune to disease and cancer; however, this remains to be proven. Sharks may get cancer. Both diseases and parasites affect sharks. The evidence that sharks are at least resistant to cancer and disease is mostly anecdotal and there have been few, if any, scientific or statistical studies that show sharks to have heightened immunity to disease.

What does immune mean?

If you are imune, then your body has made anti-bodies for a certain virus/disease. Once your body has made the antibodies the next time your body comes across that virus/disease, your body will be IMMUNE to it, and will know how to defend itself. If you have injections to prevent a particular virus/disease, then they will inject dead or un-active microbes of that virus/disease. Because then, without doing your body any harm, your body can make antibodies, making you immune.
