Do T-cells swim?

  I have read many accounts of the chemical signals sent to
alert the components of the immune system.  Unfortunately, such
articles never seem to specify how the system localizes response.
Does the immune system flood the body with T-cells and rely on
statitisical encounters and local activation or do T-cells get up 
and hike over to the fire?
