In this paper, we consider a charged relativistic spin-1 oscillator under the influence of an internal magnetic flux in a (2+1)-dimensional spacetime induced by a spinning point source. In order to analyze the effects of the internal magnetic flux and spin of the point source on the relativistic dynamics of such a vector field, we seek a non-perturbative solution of the associated spin-1 equation derived as an excited state of Zitterbewegung. By performing an analytical solution of the resulting equation, we determine exact results for the system in question. Accordingly, we analyze the effects of spin of the point source and internal magnetic flux on the relativistic dynamics of the considered test field. We see that the spin of such a field can be altered by the magnetic flux and this means that the considered system may behave as a fermion or boson according to the varying values of the magnetic flux, in principle. We observe that the internal magnetic flux and the spin of the point source impact on the relativistic energy levels and probability density functions. Also, our results indicate that the spin of the point source breaks the symmetry of the energy levels corresponding to particle-antiparticle states.
