No, it is not possible. Every multiple of 21 is a composite number.

21 is a composite number and its factors are 1, 3, 7 and 21(4 factors). Any multiple of 21 must have all the factors of 21. So, every multiple of 21 has at least 4 factors.

And a Prime number has only two factors so, any multiple of 21 can't be prime.
