In brief: Unlikely

Although the vaccine was approved in 1981, it was not in common use or part of the regular vaccination program until the mid 1990's.
With your listed age this would make you a teen and likely missed. If you have an old school shot record it may have it listed, but your doc can do a blood test to see if you have the protective antibody.
