British Biotech do a range of hygromycin and histidinol selection vectors.

Also, there's a vector by the name of pSV2-hyg originally by P. Berg for
hygromycin resistance. The EBV oriP vectors developed by B. Sugden
(Madison, U of Wisconsin) used hygromycin as well. Hyg-selection vectors
are so common I think you should be able to get them off colleagues in most
major med schools.
