It won't be necessary.

Detailed Answer:
Hi

Thank you for asking HCM

I have gone through your query. As you are taking oral vitamin D3 60k weekly repeating injections won't be necessary. According to me you can continue with the oral vitamin D supplement.
One study has shown that oral vitamin d3 has increased the blood levels of vitamin d than injections also. Do you check your vitamin D levels after 3 months of taking supplements?

Let me know if anything not clear.
I am happy to help you.
Thanks.
