There were headlines about whether it’s better to get the flu shot and the Covid-19 updated booster in one arm or one in each.
It doesn’t matter. Sena got both in one arm. Mine were split. I think it depended on the preference of the person giving the shots.
The main thing is that you consider getting them, at least. That part is up to you.

I had the choice as well, but the last time I had that choice one of the immunizations gave me a significant reaction. Since I was traveling from a low to a moderate COVID-19 zone I decided to go with the bivalent vaccine first. I ended up with about 5 days of symptoms moderate enough to take acetaminophen for. Even though getting both at once is safe – I found that you have to consider what the reaction to one of the two might be like.

Good point. I just got the flu shot and the bivalent booster yesterday. Later in the evening, my left arm (where I got the flu shot) got sore and my shoulder swelled up enough to make me look buff-only in a lopsided way. I got that after my first Covid jab, initial series. It was the right arm. I have no symptoms in the right arm now, which is where I got the bivalent booster jab.
