Yes. Many examples here if your search for them. Examples and explanations in the manual.

I can't help but point out that using the current date is a recipe for confusion. What if the job runs before midnight? After? Is re-run 12 days later? Has to work for a particular date in testing and on through the cycle?

OK. And if someone wants it for a different date, remember to temporarily change the code.

As I said, there are examples here. The manual will also get you there.

Assuming you are having your date field in CCYYMMDD format you can use the following control cards

This assumes that your date field (CCYYMMDD) is at position 25
Code:

//SYSIN   DD *
  OPTION COPY
  INCLUDE COND=(25,8,CH,LE,DATE1-7)
//*
