The CDC website has a drop-down box on the right, just above the text, that changes all the information on the page to Spanish. One exception is the link to the downloadable fact sheet about the vaccine. That information is covered in Spanish by clicking on one of the related page links right under the main text. The links under the related links tab go to the English language pages on those sites.

The Medline Plus website also translates the entire page into Spanish when the orange Espanol button on the upper right is clicked. Most of the links on the page go to Spanish-language sites. Medline Plus is operated by the U.S. National Library of Medicine and the National Institutes of Health.

The Immunization Action Coalition website focuses on vaccination for known diseases, including shingles. Clicking on the Language index tab, then on Spanish, brings up all the translations available. The link for shingles retrieves a downloadable PDF file.
