The Vivitar lens is probably a TX lens, if so it requires a TX mount. They are the sort of thing that may turn up on ebay or at a car boot sale. You will struggle to find one with a dealer. Another option would be to buy a lens (again off ebay or secondhand shop) with the correct mount. Swap mounts and sell the lens with your old mount.
