CentOS 7.3-1810, is that a typo?

If you should really run CentOS 7.3 or 7.6, then I can only recommend to update your CentOS to the newest release, since the Kernel wouldn't be the only thing to worry about.
And regarding your question: RHEL takes care of any severe vulnerabilities and fixes their products. So even though Kernel 3.10 is quiet old they maintain their kernel until RHEL/CentOS 7 reached EOL.

So, updating your CentOS to the latest CentOS 7.9-2009 should include and fix any of these vulnerabilities and if they weren't applicable to 3.10 then it won't be fixed because there was no reason.

Don't forget to reboot your server once the new Kernel was installed.

Neither 7.3 nor 7.6 are supported. Only 7.9 is. You need to yum update to get to 7.9 and then recheck.

Use the Red Hat CVE pages to check the list of CVE numbers and see which ones are fixed. Substitute the CVE numbers in https://access.redhat.com/security/cve/cve-yyyy-mmmm to read about them.

unfortunately, I did not find any specific patch or solution providing by Redhat for centos related to these vulnerabilities. If you find a link would you please send here?

You didn't look at the right place then. For the first one on your list, check https://access.redhat.com/security/cve/CVE-2020-10766

Now substitute the other CVE numbers in that url...

Do you mean "Red Hat CoreOS" in the package column?(I highlighted it in attached file). The Distribution is not centOS. Is it talking about CentOs vulnerabilities?

No, he means the row "Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7", which is the source for CentOS 7.
