Did anyone else get the Swine Flu live virus shot back in '79?

I was sooo sick for 7 to 10 days, but, it may have been the best thing to happen to me.

I haven't had a flu shot since, nor have I had the flu.  I've had really bad colds and sinus infections (more on this later), but no flu.

I heard a couple of years ago that most flu strains today are variants of the Swine Flu and that us old guys who got the shots now have some immunity (varies by person).
