Kitchen hood vent leaks when it rains

Anyone know if the vent rubber gasket is replaceable? Where to buy it? Or, another way to fix the leak?
Thanks in advance.
I posted this in another place, got no answers. So, here is what I did. I removed the outside vent cover, removed the old gasket (6"round). Then I removed all the screws holding the vent in place, lifted the vent assembly, and put Vulcrum between the vent assembly and the airstream exterior, tighened screws. Then I put new gasket material using 5/16" thick 5/8 wide all around the opening. I then adjusted the closed vent so there is no daylight coming thru. It will rain later today, I will update on this fix.
