Not necessarily. The purpose of oxygenating is to give the yeast the oxygen they need to reproduce. If they are done reproducing, but havent started active fermentation, you do not want to introduce more oxygen.

Unless you tested it first,you wouldn't know that it started even a little bit & stalled. Some habits are good to keep. Shake the snot out of it at this point,you may find yourself doing too often,& right when you shouldn't.
