In brief: Until no new sores.

Chicken pox, which you can still get mildly even if you've been vaccinated, is contagious until all the sores are crusted over and there are no new ones.
If you see any new sores at all, it's still contagious and other people are at risk.

Active chickenpox can be transmitted through the air as well as by contact,
