Moderna Inc. won approval from Singapore for its Covid vaccine and signed a deal to sell doses to the Philippines, becoming the fourth supplier to get regulatory clearance in Southeast Asia.

Shots by AstraZeneca Plc, Pfizer Inc.-BioNTech SE and Sinovac Biotech Ltd. have also been approved by at least one country in the region as inoculations roll out. China and India are giving some free vaccines to countries like the Philippines, Myanmar and Cambodia.
