Can someone become infected with Polio from someone that had it?

This may sound like a wierd question, but is it possible for someone to get polio from another person that had it when they were a kid?  The person in question is an older man who is 61 and had it when he was a kid.  Would he have been vaccinated?  Just curious.  I received two sessions of oral sex.

surely he was treated and u r fine, 61 is young to have had polio unless he had it very young because it was pretty much done away with and unless u were raised in the third world you were long ago vaccinated yourself
