I checked the reviews here and it sound's like a great lens but no mention if it's full-frame or not? I already have an APS-C Rokinon but would like to obtain a full-frame fish at some point.

Isn't it the same lens?

I considered that, but the Rokinon is listed as 8mm and has cosmetics different from the photos posted by the OP, so wasn't sure. Also, the Vivitar has excellent IQ ratings, and the Rokinon is good but not excellent so didn't conclude they were identical.

The physical sizes appear very similar, however, so my first bet is that the Vivitar is APS-C.

It is the same lens. Vivitar has a habit of marketing them with lower focal length. (i.e. their 13mm is also the same as Rokinon/Bower/Samyang 14mm). But they are all made by Samyang, just with different names.
