In brief: Hard question

Because a person may be getting varying amounts of vitamin d from the sun , how long it takes to build up or deplete will vary.
That being said, vitamin d from food or supplements have a half-life of 20-30 days, therefore a month should be plenty of time to build up in the system. Thank you.

In brief: It Depends

This depends on many factors such as: 1) what is your vitamin d level? 2) what is the reason for your deficiency?
