Hello

This is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regard.

Your PO will be notified that you missed the appointment. In that regard, generally, the PO will contact you and require you to come into the office and explain why it was missed and they can demand you give a sample that day.

However, I suggest, if you are not contacted that it is best to consider contacting the PO an explaining what happened. Offer to take a test that day. That way the PO will be hesitant to violate you since you are showing good faith in that you are self reporting the missed date.
