I think you need something like this

I have a couple that convert a standard ISO mount to a "Minolta Mount".

I would most certainly check first of all if your Vivitar is safe voltage wise on your Sony with adaptor.Many older flashes have higher voltage  than found on modern cameras.You wouldn`t want to fry the sony electronics.
You could always use it off camera with a slave attached triggered by the Minolta flash.
