I am told that per day Vitamin D dose should not exceed 4000 IU. But taking 60, 000 IU once in a week means 8, 000 IU or more per day. Is it a correct dosage for Vitamin D deficiency of 12.7? And taking this supplement daily or weekly, which is good for health?

Weekly dose of 60000 units of vit d is adviced only in case of deficiency. It should not be taken daily.
