Does anyone know what the average risk of infecting someone a vaccinated person is?

The probability is between 0 and 1.

The question is somewhat vague.

If you don't go near them, then the probability of infecting anyone is vanishingly small.

If you assume the object is not making them sick beyond mild or medium, a vague answer is about 20%-30% of the probability of infecting a non-vaccinated person, so long as their vaccination was done 2-3 weeks ago, and all other factors are identical.

Assumption : Vaccine efficacy is 70-80%

There isn't one.

Simply not enough data worldwide from any of the vaccines to say that.

We don't have data how much it reduces infection or transmission. And that assume it works at all.

Ask again in 3 months maybe.
