Yes the vibration of molecules (heat) gets transmitted from one molecule to its neighbors and thus heat is conducted in all materials solids and liquids and gases alike. In the case of a solid the molecules that vibrate more (are hotter) cannot move as freely as in liquids and gases but they do bump into neighbors and share their energy (transfer heat).
