Drawing up Moderna full dose and booster doses

If your institution has just a handful of Moderna vaccine administrations a day, do you use the same vial to draw up full dose and booster doses?
Mass vax sites/clinics it makes sense to use separate vials. We have been practicing that on the inpatient side however have been wasting more than half the doses daily, which is a waste of drug, supplies and resources.
