Antibiotics for contacts of a person with Hib disease are no longer recommended if all contacts 4 years of age or younger are fully vaccinated.

As Will and the twins are at the age that they have received their Hib vaccines, they were not at risk. The DOOL writers were pretty "right one" on this story all the way.

That would be true if the strain that Grace had was definitely HIB but she could have had another strain of bacterial meningitis such as Neisseria meningitidis, Streptococcus pneumoniae or Neisseria meningitidis.
Agreed, but Hib is the most common one, and I would not expect the writers to go any deeper with different stains. I thought the research and how this was written out was pretty accurate.

Fine but HIB has an extremely effective vaccination that is given to infants. If Grace had been vaccinated properly she wouldn't have been infected in the first place so either:

1) Sami didn't have Grace vaccinated on schedule (at 2 months Grace was still in that covent).


2) It was a different strain and the twins should have been treated with about 10 days of antibiotics.

Personally, I would be shocked if TPTB meant to make Sami culpable in her child's death.
