Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. CYstic fibrosis does not make a person immunocompromised to get pneumonia which is not even contagious. There is no chance you will get it.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
