I remember, that was Gerald Ford's administration. IIRC more people got sick (and some died) from the side effects of the swine flue vaccine than would have gotten the flu had there actually been a swine flu outbreak. From what I have read I think that the flu vaccines produced these days work differently. Back then the shot actually gave you a mild case of the flu and these days it does not do that.

I just got a flu shot last week, first time since 1974 - those darned shots used to make me sicker than a dog, so I quit taking them.

So far so good. So far.....
