The "T mount" has nothing to to with the Canon T-series. A T-mount is an interchangeable mount that is used to adapt T-mount lenses to various cameras (including Canon, but many others as well).

If the Vivitar is an FD mount lens (it usually will say "C/FD" on the mount), then it should work with the T-50. If the Vivitar is a T-mount lens (if it is, it's probably pretty old), then you can unscrew the Minolta mount and replace it with the Canon FD T-mount you ordered. If the Vivitar has a fixed Minolta mount, it will not work.
