Jean Gerich, 77, was excited to be out and about again after receiving the jab but died after a driver allegedly deliberately drove into her.
Paul Rivas, 64, smashed into Jean and nine others on Monday afternoon in Portland, police say.
Jean was rushed to the hospital and suffered from blunt force trauma, but she died after succumbing to her injuries.
Tributes have poured in for the nan, who was also a cancer survivor, according to her family.
The grandmother-of-five has been described as a “loving mother,” reports Katu 2.
In a statement released by her family, it says: “Jean Gerich was not a nameless victim. She was a loving mother of two. She was a proud grandmother of five, ages 4 to 16.
“She would have turned 78 in twelve days. She beat cancer five years ago. She received her first vaccination shot last week and was overjoyed to get out in the world again.
She has lived in the city of Portland since 1972 and for those 48 years, she has loved her community of friends, Forest Park, and the proximity to nature.
We are grateful for the good Samaritans who were at the scene. The family asks for privacy at this time.”
