You either wait for Red Hat to backport/rebase it or you change distro...
CentOS 6 died in November 2020 - migrate to a new version!

CentOS 5 is dead, do not use it.

Oh I see, isn't it CentOS 8 now ahead of RHEL? So RHEL getting derived now from CentOS starting 8, at least that is what I have read last time from centos website.

...
Since March 2004, CentOS Linux has been a community-supported distribution derived from sources freely provided to the public by Red Hat. As such, CentOS Linux aims to be functionally compatible with RHEL. We mainly change packages to remove upstream vendor branding and artwork. CentOS Linux is no-cost and free to redistribute.

There is CentOS Stream that aims to act as a semi-beta of next RHEL point release.
The Stream is separate from CentOS 8. The 8 is derived from RHEL 8.
