A 42-year-old member asked:

Can you tell me if the Hib meningitis vaccine is the same as the meningococcal meningitis vaccine?

Not the same: Hib protects against meningitis caused by haemophilus influenza type b ('h. Flu'). The Meningococcal vaccine prevents meningitis caused by neisseria meningitis ('meningococcus').
