/bin/journalctl should be provided by the system package.

What is the output of the commands
uname -a
lsb_release -crid
dpkg -l systemd
dpkg -L systemd | grep journalctl
which journalctl

The executable program /bin/journalctl is installed on your system.

What happens if you execute it?

I couldn't access it before, Thank You.
