No,Barb,get a can of brake cleaner as a quick fix and spray it into the hole that's usually got a rubber plug in it while you rotate the wheel.That will do okay if you spray enough in there to cut the oil.To really get it right,you disassemble the wheel and clean it out and the shoes with that brake cleaner spray.Also,roughen the brake linings with some coarse sandpaper before re-installing.WATCH OUT FOR YOUR EYES! Keep water handy.So what was the vibration?Was it wheel bearings out of adjustment or bad or what?
