Children are the preschools, the future owners of the country, who are being greatly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The number of children infected with COVID-19 since the pandemic broke out in Vietnam in January 2020 is increasing and is evolving very complicatedly. Moreover, children are a weak force, unable to take care of themselves before the onslaught of the pandemic. Protecting children is about protecting the future of the country; especially in the current COVID-19 pandemic, there is no vaccine to prevent COVID-19 for children, so protecting children against the COVID-19 pandemic needs to be more proactive. Based on the actual study of children infected with COVID-19, analyzing the collected data, a total of 125 parents and carers of children from 1 to 12 years old have had telephone interviews with 65 parents and carers of children, stakeholders, and representatives of families from different walks of life were interviewed using semi-structured guidance and carers children and understand the causes, this study points out the need, and the difficulties and recommends solutions to protect children's health and lives in the face of the onslaught of the COVID-19 pandemic.
