Thanks so much for posting this. I have been taking extra D when I feel like I have an infection coming on. Sun exposure and/or pills--it has been an effective defense strategy. I also get the D newsletter and enjoy reading what Dr. Cannell has to say.

I am going to order this high dose D to keep on hand in case of a flu break out at my school. It's a very dangerous job working with all those sick kids when your immune system is compromised by Cpn.

I am not sure the vaccine will come out in time and I have reservations about taking it when so little testing has been done.

Not to be taken daily!I am a pharmacist and have done much research on this topic.  I have to warn against taking such a high dose of Vitamin D.  50,000 IU should definitely NOT be taken on a daily basis.  In fact the 50,000 IU dose is not recommended unless you are being advised and monitored by your physician.  Vitamin D overdose can be very serious and threaten your health.  The recommended dosing for Vitamin D DEFICIENCY is 50,000 IU is only once a week for 4 weeks, once every two weeks for 4 weeks, then once a month thereafter.  But again, you should speak to your doctor before beginning this regimen.  And definitely do NOT give this strength of Vitamin D to anyone under the age of 18.  Vitamin D2 50,000 IU is only availble by prescription, and in my opinion the D3 should be as well.
