"vfat" isn't a command, it's a filesystem type that refers to FAT partitions. You can use the following syntax to mount your device:

mount device mount point -t filesystem type,

e.g. "mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/usb -t vfat". Obviously adjust the device and mount point accordingly. You can also specify options to mount with its -o option. See the man page for more details.
